Know More about this tour

Pick you up at your hotel from 8AM to 8:30AM. Drive to Ben Tre and board on the boat.

The boat will cruise along the Ham Luong river (a branch of the Mekong) and stop off at various local workplaces to give you a picture of how the local economy works, including a brickworks, where bricks are still painstakingly made by hand; a coconut processing workshop, where you can sample fresh coconut and see how every single part of this versatile nut is turned into food and other products; and a mat weaving house, where straw mats are woven using a hand loom – you can even have a go at weaving yourself!

The boat will then stop at a quiet village where you can have a short walk to experience real Delta village life, before boarding your xe loi (a kind of motorized rickshaw) and traveling into the forest where you can visit fruit orchards before stopping at a riverside restaurant for a delicious and filling lunch, featuring such local specialties as elephant-ear fish and river shrimp, washed down with some cold drinks or beers.

It’s time to board a sampan for a relaxing trip along narrow canals and then we take boat back to the pier and take you back to your hotel.

  • Our tour was small (only 3 of us) which made it feel all the more exclusive. Our tour guide had a lot to say about everything we saw, and really knew his stuff. The highlight was for sure the lunch we ate, absolutely fantastic. You don't spend a lot of time on the water, but I still really enjoyed it.

  • A great day out and a lovely relaxing way to experience the delights of the Mekong Delta. Everything as promised in the itinerary and one of the best lunches provided on any of the trips booked. Well worth the money.

  • We loved the tour and the tour guide, Kate. The bus provided to and from the Mekong Delta was clean and comfortable and the organization the entire trip was great.

  • This was a reasonable tour. Quite touristy but a good introduction to the Mekong. Would suggest something else if you wanted a more personal/off the beaten track experience.

    Only complaint was we were not given any water throughout the day even though it was 'included' and were then cheekily charged for drinks over lunch.

  • This trip was just amazing!! We saw so much during the one day and really felt we got a taste of life in Vietnam here. Our tour guide, Henry, was excellent - so knowledgable and friendly. Great value for money!

  • Was a great day. Very small group and we all got on well. Our tour guide Tim was fantastic ! We were driven out to the Mekong delta and had a combination of riding in boats, push bikes and canoes. We were taken to various local industries and entertained by locals. Our lunch was spectacular and gave us an opportunity to get to know each other. The drive back to the hotel was tedious but there was a it of head nodding happening. A great day, highly recommended.

  • I had a great day with Tommy as my guide! He was friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable and the tour was at a good pace with lots to see. Really delicious food for lunch - more than I could eat! - and a comfy minibus to take us there and back. I would definitely recommend.

  • Great trip. I highly encourage visitors to experience the life on the Mekong river.
    Our guide typhoon honey was so knowledgeable. Susu and nana are grateful for all we learned from our guide. Thank you
